Everyone gathers at the Site of Lessons and talk as others arrive. Once everyone has arrived they head to the Site of Remembrance and each offer up something in remembrance of the lost. Malfias appears and informs everyone about that the Outer Gate is breached and offers to works with the Netherbane to protect against whatever might be on the other side. The Elishtars, seeing the need, rejoin into one person again. And Rephaia chases Araatris back to the Site of Lessons.Read More

The team reconvenes at the bomb finding Araatris alone to guard it. The others have left. They wait anxiously for Sraath to arrive. When he does, he tosses Thar's blindfold on the ground leaving everyone to wonder if their mentor, teacher, and friend is still alive. Sraath's sword takes Tris' single soul first, but as the fight wears on... more and more fall. Shatterbound. Felshroud. Zadera. Reinforcements arrive allowing Poeryth to divest the demon lord of his blade and giving her time to free the souls within. Ary's voice counts down to an apotheosis while Sraath falls, unconscious. As the doors start to lower, the run for the exit to get out of range and trigger the bomb. Taldarion hesitates, looking behind him and sends the others onward as he turns back.Read More
Ten hours ago...
There is that touch on Sedra's consciousness, familiar, intimate, possessive...a master's caress. Her thoughts, recent memories, emotions are perused, combed through, considered and put aside almost idly.
"A task for you, Desire, as you save your pet." The voice within her mind is darkly rich and husky, that of a predator aware of his own power. A night hunter in deep shadow. "There is something I would have you procure." Tza'kiel's mental presence weaves about her mind like the hands and arms of a lover. "Your Sraath has appropriated something of mine that I would like back. A well-honed blade. Return Daethior to me and you will be well rewarded."
The demon's tone carries promises, seductive and needful. An image of a felsworn, once demon hunter and void-tainted, emerges, vivid, in her thoughts. "And, if you can, Desire, a sample of your past master's vitae. A minor thing, though. Daethior is foremost. Do not disappoint me." Just as quickly, the demon lord withdraws leaving behind a brief, aching, emptiness.
The rogue group searches for Malfias in the bowels of the Umbral Eclipse with Shazadi's help. They find the psychomancer and free him from the Mindclaw Spires. Discovering that Ary is likely tied into the vessel, Sakhari and Vasedra split up to find someone named Daethior at the behest of another while everyone else heads to the upper tower where Ary and Sraath are.Read More
The Netherbane begin their assault on the Umbral Eclipse. When they reach the doors, the spirit of Mifuune greets them and guides them through a series of puzzles/trials to place the keys in the correct locations to unlock the Umbral Eclipse. When that is complete, the bomb crew enters the ship and hurries to hook up the bomb to the ship's systems. Ary's voice comes over the ship's systems to announce a countdown to launch even as Sraath's image appears in the room, mocking them. They hook up the bomb, but not before the launch completes.Read More
